Lepidodendron Mannebachense With Cone Fragment


RomanK

Recommended Posts

Lepidodendron mannebachense has a special cone bearing branches in it crown. The cones are attached to the branch through the peduncles. You can see that hole diameter at the branch (point of peduncle attachment) is equal to the hole in the cone (empty space along the cone axis) - around 3-4mm.

Roman,

Don't know how I missed all of these wonderful posts!

I wonder how many different species of Lepidodendron are represented at your Donetsk sites?

Are you keeping species lists?

Thanks for continuing to show us your wonderful finds!

Regards,
